Ethics of Digitalization in the Automotive Industry using the example of self-driving cars
At the TEDx SiliconValley Conference of 2011, Damon Horowitz, former Director of Engineering and Google’s in-house philosopher, impressively demonstrated to his audience that many people are more familiar with the technical features of their mobile devices than with the ethical foundations of their own actions (Horowitz 2011). In the interaction between man and car, it is possible to study vividly over time how the man-machine relationship is changing: from more instrumental use to a complex digital environment, which enables a multi-layered concept of mobility, logistics and life. Autonomous mobility and autonomous driving are now an integral part of modern society – even if they are still in their infancy. What was long considered fiction is increasingly becoming reality. With the help of cameras and sensors, autonomously driving vehicles will participate in road traffic.
